Indonesian Agung volcano erupted again on Friday, May 24, 2019, ejecting ash up to 4.5 km (15 000 feet) above sea level.

Blog note. Jesus indicated that ‘fearful sights’ (various natural disasters) would occur leading up to the time known as the Tribulation and Great Tribulation (a combined seven year period of great destruction on earth). Although these types of things have occurred in the past for centuries and thousands of years, they could be identified as the ‘season of the times’ due to the ferociousness of these events. They would be occurring in greater intensity, severity, frequency, size, duration, scope … just like the pains that a woman experiences in labor the farther along she is in the labor process. We are in the ‘season of the times’ that comes just before the seven (7) year Tribulation/Great Tribulation period
… And great earthquakes shall be in diverse places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven. (Luke 21:11).
… And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; (Luke 21:25)
… Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken; (Luke 21:26)
… This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. (2 Timothy 3:1)
Jesus is giving a series of prophecies about what to look for as the age of grace comes to a close. These verses are several of many such prophecies from throughout the Bible. 2017 was the worst year in recorded history for the intensity, frequency, severity, duration and occurrence of a large number of severe natural disasters worldwide. Earthquakes, volcanoes, hurricanes, typhoons, cyclones, torrential flooding, unprecedented wildfires in unusual places, devastating droughts, excessive/scorching heat setting records everywhere, record snowfalls in Europe and Russia. Snow in the Arabia. This list can go on. Most studied Eschatologists believe these ‘fearful sights’ and massive natural disasters are all part of the ‘CONVERGENCE’ of signs that this Biblical and prophetic age is closing. Most people who study prophecy are familiar with the routine reference(s) made that these things will be like a woman having labor.

Strong eruption at Agung volcano, several flights canceled – Bali, Indonesia

Indonesian Agung volcano erupted again on Friday, May 24, 2019, ejecting ash up to 4.5 km (15 000 feet) above sea level.

The eruption took place at 11:23 UTC (19:23 WITA) and lasted for 4 minutes and 30 seconds.

The Darwin VAAC said volcanic ash was observed on multispectral satellite imagery up to 4.5 km (15 000 feet) a.s.l. Distinguishable hot spot and incandescent lava flow were observed on webcam imagery 3 km (1.8 miles) from the crater.

A thin layer of ash covered nearby villages. Several flights to and from Bali international airport have been canceled.

“Thundering sounds from the eruption were heard adequately strong from the monitoring post,” Indonesia’s Center of Volcanology and Geological Disaster Mitigation (PVMBG) said.

Residents and tourists are strictly prohibited to enter danger zone 4 km (2.5 miles) around the crater.

Residents living around nearby rivers are advised to remain vigilant on the possible stream of hot lava or volcanic materials.

Geological summary

Symmetrical Agung stratovolcano, Bali’s highest and most sacred mountain, towers over the eastern end of the island. The volcano, whose name means ” Paramount,” rises above the SE caldera rim of neighboring Batur volcano, and the northern and southern flanks of Agung extend to the coast.

The 3142-m-high (10 308 feet) summit contains a steep-walled, 500-m-wide (1 640 feet), 200-m-deep (656 feet) crater. The flank cone Pawon is located low on the SE side.

Only a few eruptions dating back to the early 19th century have been recorded in historical time. The 1963-64 eruption, one of the world’s largest of the 20th century, produced voluminous ashfall along with devastating pyroclastic flows and lahars that caused extensive damage and many fatalities.
